Join us as we take Medicine Theater's story creation to the next level...the time has come to develop Archetypal Prayer-formance Theater!

This 8 week immersion is an opportunity to take a deep dive into Medicine Theater's signature approach of discovering story through co-created visionary landscapes.

- Together we will enter our core practice of Landscaping our Inner World, where a musical journey guides us to discover the landscapes that awaken the prayers, archetypal wisdom and gifts that our creative spirits have been searching for.

- From here we will weave these individual stories into relationships with other beings, discovering co-created story threads.

- We will then develop these scenes each week, and uncover collective archetypal wisdom through the group process of long form story creation.

- This process will culminate in a musically supported prayer-formance, showcasing the characters/scenes we have been working on during the series, offered to our community as a medicine gift.

Our journey will be guided by Medicine Theater's archetypal allies, including the Sacred Fool at the Cliffs Edge, The Timeless Story Weaver, the Forest Grandmother, the Great Wisdom Coyote, and A Trusted Ancestor. We will draw on the healing powers of these archetypal beings and the art of spontaneous play as we weave together a medicine story for our personal and collective healing.

Join us and step into the portal of limitless creative possibility!
